Inter- and Transdisciplinarity in the Disposal of Radioactive Waste

The book, originating from the ENTRIA project, discusses the theoretical background and practical experiences of inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation in the controversially discussed field of nuclear waste disposal.

The new anthology is based on practical experiences from the BMBF-funded ENTRIA project, which has been dealing with questions of nuclear waste disposal in Germany since 2013. It is divided into three parts: In the first, the authors illuminate their own disciplines with regard to their contribution to waste disposal research and their interdisciplinary approaches and traditions. In the second part, examples of interdisciplinary working practices in ENTRIA are presented and analyzed. The third and final part deals with questions of knowledge synthesis.

The anthology, edited by Ulrich Smeddinck (TU Braunschweig), Sophie Kuppler (ITAS) and Saleem Chaudry (TU Clausthal), contributes to a differentiated view on the issue of radioactive waste disposal and its scientific analysis. The book is aimed at both lecturers and researchers as well as responsible persons in administration and politics, and all those interested in interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity.
